Rideshare accidents occur more often than people think.
According to the University of Chicago and Rice University, the arrival of ridesharing is associated with a 2-3% increase in the number of fatal motor vehicle accidents nationwide. In 2010, just before ridesharing services began, the number of traffic fatalities was at its all-time low. Once Uber and Lyft started growing, the numbers slowly increased.

Common Causes of Uber & Lyft Accidents in Pennsylvania
Uber and Lyft are a significant contributor to many rideshare accidents. Uber and Lyft motivate their drivers to stay on the road for as long as possible to have cars available for riders. They think that the more drivers they can get on the road, the faster they can pick up passengers requesting services. For that reason, both Uber and Lyft allow drivers to work for long hours. Uber’s app won't lock drivers out of the program until they have reached 12 hours of continuous driving. Lyft requires drivers to take a 6-hour break, but only after they have reached 14 hours of consecutive driving. As a result, drivers will be fatigued if they work the maximum number of hours.
Other common causes of Uber & Lyft accidents include:
- Aggressive driving / road rage
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Defective equipment
- Tired drivers
